<i>A fun-filled introduction to maps through the eyes of an adorable pig</i><br><br>Henry is a very particular sort of pig. "A pla...ce for everything and everything in its place," he always says. But when he looks out his window he is troubled. The farm is a mess!  Henry is worried that nobody will be able to find anything in this mess. So he draws a map showing all the animals exactly where they belong.  And Henry embarks on a journey through the farm, his friends tagging along as he creates his map: sheep in the woolshed, chickens in the coop, the horse in the stable. After the map is complete, Henry uses it to bring himself back home, where he is relieved to know that he is exactly where he belongs. A place for everything and everything in its place, indeed.<br><br>For fans of <i>Zen Shorts</i> by Jon J.
